The Whiskey Rose Cocktail

1.5 oz rye whiskey
½ oz rosemary simple syrup
½ oz lemon juice
Sparkling apple soda such as IZZE Sparkling Apple 
Sprig of rosemary and slice of apple for garnish

First make the Rosemary Simple Syrup. Add one cup of sugar and one cup of water to a saucepan and bring to a boil. Once sugar is dissolved, remove from the heat and add 3 sprigs of fresh rosemary. Once its cooled, strain the simple syrup and place in a lid tight container. Keep any extra refrigerated. For the Whiskey Rose, in a cocktail glass, stir together whiskey, simple syrup, and lemon juice. Add a scoop of ice. Top with sparkling apple soda, then dash with bitters. Garnish with your rosemary and your apple slice. Cheers!
